Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents a new method for human face recognition by utilizing Gabor-based region covariance matrices as face descriptors. Both pixel locations and Gabor coefficients are employed to form the covariance matrices. Experimental results demonstrate the advantages of this proposed method.
